• Seth + Emily

That’s the nickname that kept floating through the air on her wedding day. Em has dreamed about this day for so long.  Marrying the man of her dreams, being surrounded by her best friends and celebrating with her sweet family.  I remember late nights, sitting with Em on my bedroom floor in the Middle House, just talking about weddings, relationships, the future… everything that we were so uncertain about.  Seth and Em started dating at the same time that Michael left to go to North Carolina.  We were both experiencing long-distance relationships and the struggle that that brings. Some days we would laugh at how hard it was, some days we would sit on each others beds and cry…..

…and then some days we would do both…. at the same time! Such girls. It was a hard year for both of us. Really hard. But the Lord is so faithful and look where we are today!  Em is married to her best friend and in less than 2 months, I will be too!  Because I have walked through so much “life” with Em… it made her wedding day so incredibly special for me.  After the bridesmaids were done with their portraits, I stayed back with Emy and shot some bridal portraits.  During those few minutes that we had together, I became overwhelmed with the privilege that I had on that day. As I was trying to adjust shutter speeds and W/B settings, the tears started flowing. She was beautiful….absolutely beautiful.. and not just because she had an awesome birdcage veil and stunning dress… but because I know her heart.  She has longed for this day for so so long and it was finally here.  In less than an hour, she would be walking down the aisle to the love of her life… the boy we had been praying for since we met my freshman year.  This was a special day.  What an honor it was for me! Not only did I get the opportunity to photograph most of their wedding day, I was also a bridesmaid!  It was such a privilege to be there and I loved every minute of it!


Between their amazing families and dear friends that surrounded them on their wedding day, I don’t know if it was possible for them to feel more loved than they did last Friday night. Seth and Emily danced the night away and celebrated.  Such an awesome party for an awesome couple. Em and Seth, I can’t tell you how much I love you! What a beautiful marriage you are going to have! I’m so pumped you’re going to be in Richmond so that Michael and I can shared life with you two! I love you and I hope the two week honeymoon is fabulous!  Love, K

I’m begging Michael to let us have a red room in our house! Just one! Don’t you love that?!

Seth’s mom did an AMAZING job on the florals!!

Just a little note to future brides… the Mill is an INCREDIBLE venue….. I’m begging my sister to get married there one day! haha

Someone described Em as a “girly tomboy”… so fitting. Loved the boots!


Ok, so I remember when all of Em’s older siblings were getting married! We looked at their pictures and were so excited for their family. Well, now there are grandbabies! Awwww….Talk about an exciting 5 years for Em’s parents! Whew!!
